Here's my pick of recent additions to this lively neighbourhood. 

1. Bert Frank 

Made in the West London, this award-winning British luxury lighting brand founded in 2013 by designer, Robbie Llewellyn and metalwork factory owner, Adam Yeats. I love the influence fo the industrial era but with a contemporary twist.

We all love an icon… meet French design legend Pierre Guariche. 

 

Step back in time and discover a classic collection by one of the most prolific designers and interior architects of the 1950s. In 2019,  Sammode Studio - leading French lighting design-manufacturers - are reissuing a selection of his iconic luminaires.  Welcome to the Sammode-Pierre Guariche collection. 

Excuse the pun, but it’s no surprise this came to light -  Sammode’s aesthetic and technological quest has long been influenced by design principals established by Guariche himself. The affinities are legion and can be summed up in a single word: innovation.

A true pioneer, Guariche invented a huge range of technical solutions we use today : the adjustable balance arm, the cantilever, the pivoting and tilting arm, the ball jointed arm and spherical counterweights.  

He also introduced the codes of a radical aesthetic -  purity in line and totally original forms mixed in with an innovative technical approach his use of materials, especially metal. 

This is central to Sammode’s expertise in industrial lighting production and suitability today.  Faithful to the original designs and incorporating today’s technologies, the Sammode—Pierre Guariche models benefit, like all Sammode luminaires, from state-of-the-art production quality and Made in France manufacture.

Come and see them for yourself this week!
